Our Fight Against

Modern Day Slavery



A collective of determined individuals united in the pursuit of eradicating modern-day slavery and human trafficking, formed MPAHT in 2017. This alliance of conference/event planners, hotel sales experts, and audiovisual professionals initially aimed to raise awareness about human trafficking. Since then, the organization has evolved into a powerful resource center, empowering those who wish to educate themselves, contribute to the cause, or participate in our mission.

We believe together we are making a difference in eradicating modern-day slavery and human trafficking. There are 50 million people in modern slavery (2021 statistic from The Global Slavery Index), if not now, when should we be doing this? Look at the statistics in our resource section.

  1. Focus on the larger issue of human trafficking and slavery while continuing to sustain our efforts against sex trafficking.
  2. Maintain and expand MPAHT’s role as the leading organization providing education and resources to other members of the hospitality and travel industries
    • Continue to educate and network with other organizations
    • Advocate within the industry for organizations to address trafficking issues and to support their efforts
  3. Create an online library of resources
  4. Continue to share world resources through our digital media

A shift in our purpose and mission comes after almost 6 years of raising awareness about human trafficking in the hospitality industry. With the hospitality, tourism, and conference industries more aware and active in the fight against sex trafficking and the broader issue of human trafficking, MPAHT is redirecting its energies.
